Implant Sciences Reports Second Quarter and Six Month Financial Results

Company to Host Earnings Call on Tuesday, February 21st at 4:15 PM EST

WILMINGTON, MA--(Marketwire - Feb 17, 2012) - Implant Sciences Corporation (OTCQB: IMSC) (PINKSHEETS: IMSC), a high technology supplier of systems and sensors for the homeland security market and related industries, today announced financial results for the second quarter and six months ended December 31, 2011.

Revenues for the second quarter ended December 31, 2011, decreased by 64%, to $1.1 million. Our net loss for the quarter ended December 31, 2011 was $3.3 million as compared with a net loss of $9.4 million for the comparable prior year period, a decrease of $6.1 million, or 65.0%. The decrease in the net loss is primarily due to the non-cash fair value adjustments recorded in the quarter ended December 31, 2010 on certain note conversion option liability and warrant derivative liability.

Revenues for the six months ended December 31, 2011 decreased by 48%, to $2.2 million. Our net loss for the six months ended December 31, 2011 was $6.4 million as compared with a net loss of $10.0 million for the comparable prior year period, a decrease of $3.7 million, or 36.6%. The decrease in the net loss is primarily due to the non-cash fair value adjustments recorded in the six months ended December 31, 2010 on certain note conversion option liability and warrant derivative liability.

Glenn D. Bolduc, President and CEO of Implant Sciences, commented, "During the past two quarters Implant Sciences has achieved a number of strategic goals that we believe position the Company for long-term growth. However, we are clearly disappointed by our current financial performance. We are seeing increased activity in the markets we serve, but also a delay in procurement decisions as projects are deferred or temporarily put on hold. We have taken a number of steps to broaden the markets we serve and increase our distribution so as to diversify our revenue opportunities. These include:

  • Launching our newest product, the QS-B220, a trace explosives and narcotics detector, which is generating a lot of excitement in the market due to its versatility, operational advantages, and value equation. The QS-B220 enables us to target markets such as border security, prisons and other venues that face threats from both explosives and narcotics.
  • Signing a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement with the Transportation Security Laboratory which has been working closely with our QS-B220 product to help us in preparing for TSA qualification and certification. We have received notification from TSA that the product is eligible for the Air Cargo Screening Qualification Test and are progressing in the qualification process.
  • Receiving CE certification for the QS-B220, an important step for generating sales in Europe.
  • Increasing our geographic coverage, announcing a new distributor in Uzbekistan and sales in ten different countries.
  • Continuing the diversification of our markets with sales to a wide variety of customers, including airports, banks, embassies, police departments, nuclear power plants, and even an innovative mobile air cargo screening service.
  • Grew our sales pipeline by 25% from the end of FY2011."

Mr. Bolduc concluded, "We have much work ahead of ourselves, but remain excited about our future prospects."

Details for the second quarter and six months ended December 31, 2011 follow below.

  • Research and development expense for the quarter ended December 31, 2011 was $747,000 as compared with $650,000 for the comparable prior year period, an increase of $97,000, or 14.9%, due primarily to increased costs incurred in the development of the QS-B220 benchtop explosives and narcotics detector, as well as expenses incurred to prepare for certain government laboratory acceptance testing, including our participation in the Cooperative Research and Development Agreement with the Department of Homeland Security's Science and Technology Directorate.
